Thursday With The Grands

We've had the kids every afternoon this week while Josh and Cyrise go to the hospital to be with Gina. Yesterday we took them outside to play.

Camryn and Aubrey in the grass. I had to make them sit down in order to have time to snap a picture before they started moving around again.

Here they are sitting in a chair together. I love how Aubs has her arm around Cammy.

Reece wanted to go up on the second story deck, so Papa took him up there. Here he is, looking down at his little sisters in the grass. :o)

I'm glad Papa had a couple of days off for the Veteran's Day holiday.

Aubrey had a throw-herself-down-on-the-floor-screaming-and-crying fit when we brought them inside. She loves playing outside.

Ron and I went to see Gina last night. She was wide awake and alert when we got there, and hungry! The nurse gave her a bottle of breast milk and she downed all 25 cc's in record time, with a little stop to burp. She is having absolutely no trouble drinking, and I hope she will be able to come home in a day or two.

Papa held her for awhile, then I held her. Once again she had the hiccups after eating. Although she was awake for over an hour, she hardly cried at all, but just looked around and made cute faces.

I don't have to tell you that you are blessed!
People are good things to be blessed with!

You are so right, Sarah. We are truly blessed with these tiny little people. :o)

Kalona, they are so beautiful :) What a wonderful thing for you to be able to spend time with them. And good too that your husband was able to be home for a few days :)

You remain in our prayers :)

Thank you, Jennifer! We've enjoyed the extra time we've spent with them lately, especially the girls since they aren't with us as often as Reece. I'll be glad when their little sister is home from the hospital though.

You and your mom are also in our prayers!
